New Richmond art students aid Haiti relief fund

New Richmond’s elementary visual arts teachers had an easy time coming up with a theme for their 2010 Ohio Youth Art Month project.

Their students did it for them.

“The ‘HeARTs for Haiti’ project was established after our art students saw television coverage of the earthquake damage in Haiti and wondered how they could help,” said New Richmond Elementary visual arts teacher Amy Cholkas, who joined with Monroe Elementary art teacher Adrian Hawk and Locust Corner art teacher Tim Cook to encourage their students to make a difference through art.
